Tax Efficient Donations from Outside Ireland
It's possible to make tax efficient donations to the Academy from outside of Ireland.
Donations from European Countries
Members of the Academy resident in a number of European countries, including the UK, can make tax-efficient donations through the Transnational Giving Europe (TGE)<transnationalgiving.eu> network, a partnership of European charitable foundations. The TGE network enables donors resident in any of the participating countries to support non-profit organisations in other member countries. Donors are then eligible to receive the tax benefit of the country in which they live.
